I am licensed in Michigan with over 20 years of professional work experience. I have specialized experience in helping clients with relationship issues, trauma and abuse, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & depression. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment, but I will call them on their crap when and if appropriate. I have tattoos that I don't try to hide and I occasionally even swear. If either of those things offend you, I might not be the right fit. However, If you want someone who keeps it real while helping you become the best version of yourself, let's chat. Either way, taking the first step to sign up for therapy takes courage and I applaud you for getting started!

Cynthia is such a beautiful understanding person. She remembers everything without having to dig up a notepad and checks in very frequently to make sure you’re okay or to just follow up on things going on with you in between sessions. It really makes you feel like you have a caring personal relationship with her and a friend more than going to see a “professional” that doesn’t get far often. She listens very well and helps you understand things to make a decision on your own for what is best. She encourages you to better yourself and bring happiness into your life. I love her and recommend her to everyone.
